Title: The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1)

Author: Lois Lowry
Summary: Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

Review: Stunning. In Jonas' perfect world, everyone is planned. Your life is mapped out carefully. It is a world of Utopia, perfectness. The elders command you. They choose who you are, your spouse, your children, your job. Until Jonas is selected to be receiver of memory. Together he and the Giver come up with a plan to help their community see, a plan destined to change everything... Amazing, Lois Lowry is meticulous, and doesn't let a single detail ruin her reputation.
